Looking forward to 2017

As this year comes to a close, I wanted to thank everyone who has taken the time to read this blog, leave a comment, or share a document with me.

When I started this blog in April of this year, I was not sure that I'd find a lot of people who wanted to read about this particular part of DeKalb's history. I also wasn't sure if they'd be interested in reading so much about just one man -- Mr. Jacob Haish. But you've proved me wrong, and I am so grateful for that. 

I have been honored to learn these stories, to interview some of you, and to "meet" the rest of you via email and Facebook. I love knowing that there's a community of people who love this history like I do. And although I still have so much to learn and so many more people to meet, I'm excited and ready to continue this project into 2017. 

As always, I encourage you to please contact me at if you'd like to get together or share information regarding the Haish family. I'm always looking to learn and share more.

Unfortunately I cannot promise that I will post something fresh every day, or even every week, but I will as often as I can because I truly love this project. I have learned so much about my community, my family, and even myself.

Thank you for all your assistance, your support, and your guidance. I hope you have a wonderful New Year, and I look forward to working with you all in 2017.

Jessi (Haish) LaRue
